can debate whether it costs jobs or not. i remember when we raised the minimum wage under bill clinton we had the best following years of job creation we've had in the last 60 years. you can't debate the fact that when you raise the minimum wage it has the effect of raising other salaries up and up as well so i think there's a lot of stuff in the democratic arsenal and particularly the point larry makes is a good one what. do the republicans have to say about the economy? cutting taxes and lowering regulation? we tried that in the bush years, and it was a total failure. >> no, no. hang on a second. front page of the "new york times." bill clinton in his second term or actually after he got shell lacked in '94, and he's proud of this, and i'm going to back clint on on this. he was a great economic president. you know why? he was a supply-sider in his second term. he lowered the capital gains tax and participated in a deal with gingrich on welfare reform, on free trade. he did all the right things. those guys cut spending. that's the kind of agenda we need right now. here's one for you.

with stronger requests for action. >> that means then secretary of state hillary clinton has some splaining to do. but so does president obama. remember, he is the commander and chief. the military cannot move without his order. and he obviously didn't give it. why? the general is as confused as i am. >> we didn't know how long this would last when we became aware of the distress nor did we completely understand what we had in front of us. >> so that means that the attack could have been larger. the military didn't know. and forces didn't mobilize to save the people under siege? that's shocking. see, that's what this story is all about. the failure of the u.s. government to protect americans under fire in benghazi. and then after the fact trying to say oh the killers weren't organized terrorists. are we all getting this. but, again, the national media won't cover it. does it get any worse than that in our democracy? talking points is angry. the obama administration was completely derelict in the benghazi terror attack and was dishonest in the aftermath. and the national press doesn't give a

a few years ago. president clinton traveled to the airport in rwanda and issued what has come to be known as the clinton apology for failing to do more to stop the violence. later, president george w. bush famously wrote, quote, not on my watch, end quote, in the argin of a report on the rwanda genocide. no president wants an atrocity on their watch. i venture this much is true of president obama, and yet every indication points to the fact that the crisis currently unfolds in south sudan is headed to the way of rwanda. in fact, yesterday the u.n. high commissioner for human rights characterized south sudan as, quote, on the verge of catastrophe, end of quote, but with the stakes as high as they are, the situation is simply not being met with the urgency it demands. it is time for bold action. president obama, who so far has failed, he has failed on this issue, he should immediately dispatch former president george w. bush, who has a great reputation in africa, and former president bill clinton, who also has a good reputation in africa to help negotiate lasting peace and to co

political an assessment, for example, hillary clinton gets elected for eight years of democratic rule, followed by two and a half years more of president obama, at some point during the course of that decade, they might be able to shift the supreme court back to something reasonable about the money and speech. but remember, it seems to be as long as you got discord, even with kennedy on it, you're not going to get a good result. >> that's true, but the history of reform as a political matter, you know this, is there's no impetus in congress for change unless there's -- >> of course not. >> unless there's a scandal. watergate, all led to reform, but we got to -- you wait for that, then you -- >> could that be because politicians think it must be a good system, i'm here? >> that's right. >> thank you, david corn. i'm very despondent about this decision and its constant use of big money to tell us what to think. >>> anyway, up next, big victory for opponents of voter i.d. laws, and it is a big victory, and the reason some believe it could lead to more victories. this is "hardball," the p

the so-called labor participation rate. so what did president clinton do when his economic advisers said don't do it, mr. president? perhaps it is good politics, it will hurt the economy and it will put people out of work. and president clinton, to his credit decided not to pursue that particular 41% increase in minimum wage. but i mention that is a sad contrast with the current situation. president obama, seeing his favorability ratings of the lowest they have been since he became president is trying to change the object. we all know that a massive minimum wage increase can be a job killer. and they want to ignore the congressional budget report. and they want us to believe that they will have little or no effect and maybe would have a positive effect and this includes america's businesses being no better and they started washing dishes and they started at the bottom and work their way up because they could find a job and they could get their hand on the first rung of the economic ladder. and they understand how businesses work and they understand the negative consequences of this bad p
